The Addition 2.0

Published 2 months ago • 2 min read

There's no doubt that that Kate Middleton photo is a major comms strategy screw-up that has generated a lot of attention. (I wrote about it for CapX.) But has anyone noticed that Americans seem more excited by the whole saga than us Brits?!

The next few months are going to be very interesting for "GB News". It seems happy to push the boundaries, but how far can that go, especially during an election campaign? The regulator Ofcom is now watching the upstart broadcaster, although I don't get the sense from anyone that there is a realistic chance of its broadcast licence being revoked. It is going to get contentious though.

The Addition 2.0

You may have noticed that The Addition was a bit quiet last week. That’s because some exciting things are happening. Firstly, this newsletter is going (almost entirely) paid only. The full Tuesday and Friday versions, and the archive, will be available only to paid subscribers. These are going to include longer analysis pieces as well as all the good stuff that ends up in my notebook.

Free subscribers will still get something though. When the podcast returns, (which will be soon,) I will send that out to the entire list, along with some other snippets that I hope you will enjoy. However, the in-depth analysis and news will be paywalled. Paid subscriptions are the best way to support the ongoing growth of The Addition and I really appreciate anyone who takes one out.

There are big scoops and pieces of analysis that I’m working on, so subscribers will get plenty of value. I’m also offering the first 20 people to take out a new subscription a 20% discount, so don’t delay!

Mehdi Hassan's new project, Zeteo, is already making waves. Mayor of London Sadiq Kahn had to apologise to Britain's Chief Rabbi for comments he made when talking to the former MSNBC host. Gary Lineker's recent appearance also raised some eyebrows. The BBC hasn't had much to say on whether his comments about the war in Gaza are in keeping with the social media guidelines written for the former footballer. Euro 2024 starts on June 14, with Lineker set to lead Aunty's coverage. Up For Debate...

Women’s sport is having a moment. In the UK, the Women’s FA Cup Final between Man Utd and Spurs was attended by 76,082 fans on Sunday (including me). That’s just shy of the record-breaking 77,390 who went to Wembley last season. Today, Arsenal Women announced that they will use the club’s main Emirates Stadium as their base from next season. A huge move, but perhaps not a surprising one given they keep selling it out. Over in the US, basketball player Caitlin Clark is a phenomenon. She has...
